How do you build a solid foundation for a new life? A question as general as this could merit rolling eyeballs or continuous head scratching and to those who have just gone out of rehab may be in a dilemma when asked this straight. Isn’t it too abrupt to go home directly from a facility? To us, it definitely is.
Here at Casa Nuevo Vida, life is quite different. We treat issues in a subtle manner but with utmost precision. Having had fully understood the importance of teaching living in a life of sobriety, we take time out to make every patient aware that dealing with several issues right after detox is essential in establishing a renewed persona.
What we offer:
Easy transition into the real world by means of immersion in an alcohol and drug-free community.
Assurance of a patient’s involvement in activities such as the 12-step program and physical fitness which are vital to long term recovery.
A peaceful environment which can highly motivate patients into embarking on a new kind of life.
Instill in the minds of patients that there is love and care waiting back home.
A fresh and clean environment is a requirement once your goal is to provide a change of lifestyle. A community which has all the amenities like a place for meditation, a consultation area and a kitchen that can cater the food cravings of each resident is a must for reforming individuals. Certified field experts are what you can expect to see within your stay at this reputable transition home.
No venue could be as peaceful as a Zen garden and the sound of dripping water on a fountain. This helps in conditioning the mind into thinking about peaceful means to troubleshoot problems. It can be noted that the appetite of a reforming addict can grow wild once stress is still embedded inside his body. Therefore, sober living homes see to it that food served on the table is balanced. There are also several choices of dishes on the menu and nutritionists can prepare the right ones to conform to certain health conditions.
Physical Activities – Sports, being one of the staple activities in these locations, enable residents to become physically active. Several types of sports and routine exercises are initiated by exercise gurus inside the walls of every sober home. These instructors believe that a sane mind is a result of an active body.
Emotional Support – There are regular meetings conducted by advisers that involve other dwellers which can be very helpful in enhancing emotional and mental balance. There is always an ear for everybody and solutions can be very handy once communication is open. Scheduled interaction is where assessment takes place and makes it easy for in-house staff to consider each and every one’s progress.
Progress reports can be easily logged if there is cooperation between patient and post-rehab treatment specialists. The only assurance that patients are longing to hear from resident professionals is how fast the recovery methodology is applied. It is in the appropriate application where positive outcome can be extracted.
It is important that a guarantee coming from the administrators is set upon registration. However, there should also be a counter undertaking that the incoming guest will participate in activities involved within the house. No application can be successful if there is no willingness or voluntary effort emanating from the patient himself.
Family Bond Restoration
Inside these homes, the word family is once again brought up as one of the essentials in preparing an individual to come face to face with life itself. We could not think of another word that can motivate patients more into recuperating from addiction but the bonds that they have once been tied into. Not that they have forgotten they used to belong to a family but, instilling into their minds that the quality of the relationship can be improved to make their homecoming more meaningful.
It is true when you say that a solid foundation for a better life starts at home and can only be established there. Once there is no strong bond, don’t expect things to come out fine unless a highly-motivated individual makes an effort to go at it all by himself using his own method and target.
Here are 4 aspects that you need to think about:
Respect – There must be an acceptance between members of the family as each individual is unique. Respect each other to gain respect for yourself. Give time to think about their positive and negative behaviors and try to balance them in a way they balance how they think about you. This provides you with a clear head start to recovery.
Save some time to bond – There is always a time for everything you want to do in a day. Tasks can be scheduled but family meetings need to be on top of your priorities. It is a time to clear doubts and solve family matters and a time for all of you to reassure yourselves that you still belong to the same family.
Communicate – If ever there is a problem with being together with the rest due to an important matter or sickness, then, you can make it a point to connect. You can use the Internet to send a message anytime. There are other technological avenues that are available for you to use which makes it impossible for miscommunication or even the slightest disinformation.
Show appreciation – Thank your family for being there with you at all times and appreciate even for the smallest thing they have done for you. This is how you cultivate family culture. Nothing can match appreciation that comes from the bottom of your heart.
Recovery can be expedited once there is complete awareness of the processes and the likelihood of succeeding is high. Ending the program only takes a little time and once you are sure that you can tackle the life ahead, you will be thankful to learn that your family is right there waiting for you with open arms and complete understanding.
